One Indian Girl by Chetan Bhagat

One Indian Girl by Chetan Bhagat: In his new fiction book Chetan presents his take on feminism, a subject both powerful and controversial, much like Chetan himself. We caught with him to discuss the importance of gender equality and know more about his new book, which is perhaps his boldest yet. An excerpt from an interview with the author.

One Indian Girl is about an Indian girl who is intelligent and successful, because of which she finds it difficult to get love.

It hopes to question society, which judges women achievers. It asks why when it comes to love, being intelligent and too successful is almost a drawback for women.

A Feast of Vultures: The Hidden Business of Democracy in India

The Hidden Business of Democracy in India: ‘Every day, millions of people – the rich, the poor and the many foreign visitors – are hunting for ways to get their business done in modern India. If they search in the right places and offer the appropriate price, there is always a facilitator who can get the job done. This book is a sneak preview of those searches, the middlemen who do those jobs and the many opportunities that the fast-growing economy offers.’

READ  Create A World With Peace and Joy

Josy Joseph draws upon two decades as an investigative journalist to expose a problem so pervasive that we do not have the words to speak of it. The story is big: that of treacherous business rivalries, of how some industrial houses practically own the country, of the shadowy men who run the nation’s politics. The story is small: a village needs a road and a hospital, a graveyard needs a wall, people need toilets. A Feast of Vultures is an unprecedented, multiple-level inquiry into modern India and the picture it reveals is both explosive and frightening. Within these covers is unimpeachable evidence against some of the country’s biggest business houses and political figures and the reopening of major scandals that have shaped its political narratives. Through hard-nosed investigations and the meticulous gathering of documentary evidence, Joseph clinically examines and irrefutably documents the non-reportable. It is a troubling narrative, but also a call to action and a cry for change. A tour de force through the wildly beating heart of post-socialist India, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in understanding the large, unwieldy truth about this nation. #BestBooksOfTheYear  Click here to View Offer/Discount


The Rise and Fall of Nations: Ten Rules of Change in the Post-Crisis World

The Rise and Fall of Nations: Ten Rules of Change in the Post-Crisis World: Shaped by his 25 years travelling the world and enlivened by his encounters with presidents, tycoons and villagers from Rio to Beijing, Ruchir Sharma’s new book rethinks the dismal science of economics as a practical art, based not just on crunching numbers but on live observation. He shows us how to read the political headlines, the world billionaire rankings, the price of onions and popular news magazine covers as signs of coming booms, busts and protests. Parsing the complicated flood of data on debt, trade and capital flows, Sharma explains exactly which numbers are most telling for a nation’s fortunes and when they signal a turn for the better or worse.

READ  Importance of honesty in life

In our post-crisis age that has turned the world on its head and ended a decade of supercharged growth, replacing political calm with revolt and hype for globalization with fear of deglobalization, Sharma’s pioneering book serves as a highly readable field guide to understanding change not only in this new era, but in any era. It is written for any practical person – newspaper reader, business executive, politician or investor – interested in a new economics focused on what is coming next, not on the past. There is a saying that to know the road ahead, ask those coming back. On this road, Sharma is the one who has been there ahead of us. #BestBooksOfTheYear Click here to View Offer/Discount
